A plan to release over 750 million genetically modified mosquitos into the Florida Keys in 2021 and 2022 has received final approval from local authorities, as well as state and federal approval, despite the objection from many local residents and a coalition of environmental advocacy groups.
In the video “750 Million Genetically Engineered Mosquitoes To Drive Away Diseases from Florida, SciTech Update“, below:
In a bid to outsmart nature, 750 million non-biting male genetically modified mosquitoes are to be released in Florida in the hopes of replacing the disease-bearing population of natural mosquitoes. RT America’s John Huddy has the details. Then biologist and wildlife expert Dr. Reese Halter weighs in, in the video “750 million genetically modified mosquitoes released in Florida“, below:
As the public debates continue, there is a risk that the politics of genetically modified crops could spill over to the mosquito issue. Anti-GMO groups (over 160 organizations) such as Friends of the Earth have already called for a moratorium on gene drive research. They fear it will be missed by agribusiness and militaries and cause unintended damage to ecosystems. But it is also true that some of mankind’s greatest achievements such as getting rid of small pox, penicillin, insulin for diabetics, mass vaccinations, involve messing with nature and either repurposing or tweaking things that nature created, for our own uses. So the optimal way to handle this controversial issue is to : be sure to ensure biosafety capacity, fully informed consent for the planned experiments, compliance with regulatory requirements, transparency and public consultation.
